King Arthur's Tomb and Slaughter bridge at Camelford

King Arthur's Tomb and Slaughter bridge at Camelford

In the picturesque portion of the valley of the Camel in Cornwall lies the somewhat dreary little town of Camelford, which claims to be the Camelot of the Arthurian legend. It is one of several places reputed as the scene of his death, and a cave (bottom) is pointed out as his Tomb. Slaughter Bridge (top) has more claim to be regarded as the scene of the great battle between Arthur and his insurgent nephew, Modred, though there is a conflict of testimony as to whether Modred was slain by Arthur or the latter wounded by a poisoned arrow.
